Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Who was Sweet Susie?

In the very early years of Loser being in the rotation Jerry would sing "...last fair deal in the country, Sweet Susie."

Does anyone know who Sweet Susie was, why Garcia included this reference at this point of this song? Also, why did he drop the phrase as the '70's progressed?

I just think it fit, and was easy to remember. Nothing deep there. Why drop it? - my guess is that it puts the emphasis back on "last fair deal" and leaves the guitar there for clean accent....

This topic comes up often - see last fall.... http://archive.org/post/393142/hey-losers
